    I haven't yet seen a report that the victim fired his gun. I'm sure the police would know by now, and so far they are saying the 5 shots came from the murderer and 3 shots came from a 3rd person who shot at the car after he tried to flee the scene.

    Yet, we have people on the internet who can tell who did the shooting by the sound ... :rolleyes:

    Sometimes it does.

    Carrying a gun in her purse may have saved my wife’s life. It most certainly saved her from being car jacked.

    That was back in the early 70s.

    Y’all don’t like guns, don’t own one. I believe in choice.

    We choose to own guns.

    Or not:

    BREAKING: Garrett Foster Likely Didn't Fire Gun, But Pointed Rifle At Concealed Carrying Driver Who Did Fire – Concealed Nation

    Your source: GF did nothing wrong.

    Another source: GF definitely pointed his gun at the driver.

    Surrounding a car and pointing a gun is enough to cause a person to perceive a threat. Surrounding a car is honestly enough. Here's a tip: Get the hell out of the road! Nobody said you can't protest. But you don't have the right to commandeer the streets!

    The first shots are from a rifle.

    OK ... watch out for moving goal posts. And get your ears checked.

    Not at all. I think he pulled the trigger. Somebody fired a rifle. How many people were carrying rifles at this "peaceful" protest?

    And that's rich coming from you.

    It's sad that you can't admit you are wrong when the police definitively say you are wrong and even your own link to a pro-guns website says in the headline "Garret Foster Likely Didn't Fire Gun". I mean, it's right there in the headline, of an article you posted. ... Sad.

    I'm likely not going to hit with a baseball bat. Suppose I run into you now. Do you feel confident and safe I won't?

    Is that supposed to be some kind threat?
